Is there domestic violence in homosexual relationships?

Yes, domestic violence is present in lesbian and gay relationships. Domestic violence does not limit itself to gender, sex, or race. Some studies indicate that domestic violence in same-sex relationships appears to occur at the same rate as that in opposite-sex relationships. Seen this way, it could be argued that in some people, intimate human relationships incubate conditions necessary for domestic violence. In human relations, heterosexual and homosexual, partners achieve a level of intimate knowledge about each other.
